In Spectacle, we deal with learning mechanisms in everyday life. We create a plastic, human and mobile installation. We create on stage a network inspired by an electric circuit, an Internet network and a virtual game. This invisible circuit will have its own rules, its stops, obstacles, crossings, accidents, obligations and repetitions¦ We focus on the spectacularisation of intimacy, on the conflict between instincts and social codes, and the conditioning of personality. Towards the research of interpersonal communication.
The dramaturgy is based on scientific experiments, symbols, images, reality functioning, texts and works of the 20th century's thinkers.
